(Redirected from Manhattan)

New York is the largest city in the United States, located in southeastern New York, at the mouth of the Hudson River where it is joined by the East River as they flow into the Atlantic Ocean. It is often conflated with the borough of Manhattan, also called New York City, where the city's downtown core is located.

Among the other four boroughs, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island have had their own professional baseball teams under their respective names, while The Bronx is home to the New York Yankees.
